Friends

Inspiration by Lori Tecler
Isn't it great that we all have different taste? Some projects just don't appeal to me & others immediately grab my attention.  When I checked the current Muse challenge I couldn't take my eyes off Lori's soft, soothing & beautiful card. The monochromatic palette & layout was so appealing to me I wanted to play along. 

One of the best purchases I ever made is American Crafts Botanique printed paper I got in a close-out.  I used one of my favorite sheets along with the solid Savory harvest gold by SEI.  The coordinating Flair badges came with the paper pack & I've really been hoarding them, so this card will go to a good friend I'm sure will appreciate it--LOL!  
The sentiment is from Penny Black's eloquence set & is stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa. I'm also entering the Simon Says Anything Goes challenge

If you don't follow my friend, Alexandra, now would be a good time to start.  Check out the fabulous Faber-Castell giveaway on her blog.


Hope you're enjoying the weekend.  Thanks so much for taking some time to visit me.
